Room was a good size for us as we booked the double size room. We ended up staying 2 nights instead of 1. The staff were very helpful in informing us of everything to do on the island, Was a great help in getting us booked in for the penguin parade.

We booked direct with the motel for the best rate of $190nett for a 2br apartment for 2 nights. The owners Catherine & Lino are nice and friendly to deal with. They gave wifi access for 5 of us (5 devices) which they didn't charge us for, which is a real bonus as almost all other motels and home stays...

Was there for 1 night. 15 mins drive from Penguin Parade. Motel is in the main town of Philip Island with supermarket and restautants. Great choice for short stays. Owner was friendly, Room was clean with parking lot right in front of room. Only glitch was the water boiler should be maintained.
